  1. AN UPDATE Although I would have thought that formatting the CD would automatically erase any files on it, seemingly it didn't. Anyway, I erased the files using another method and this time Windows Media Player (WMP) allowed me to burn some new files to the CD - so far so good. However, when I tried to burn more files to the CD, WMP ejected the disc and told me to insert a new blank disc! But the files already on there only amounted to only 59MB so why didn't WMP let me add to that by letting me burn more files onto the disc? I don't understand this and nor do I understand why, after formatting the disk, as I originally did, WMP didn't recognize that the files had been erased but instead ejected the disk and asked me to insert a new blank disk. Can anybody enlighten me please?
  2. I had some files on a CD but I wanted to delete them and then download some mp3 files to the blank disc. I thought the best way would be to format the CD, so I did that. When I tried to get Windows Media Player to accept the mp3 files so they could be burned, it kept asking me to insert a blank disc but I thought that formatting it would have made it blank(?)
  3. My PC, which runs on Windows 7, has MS Office Starter 2010 installed. Up until a couple of weeks ago, when you opened a spreadsheet in MS Excel Starter it came up almost straightaway. Then, for some reason, it suddenly started taking up to half a minute to show the spreadsheet. Similarly, when you close the individual spreadsheet down, it takes a long time to disappear from the screen. Anyone got any ideas as to why this might be happening? Thanks.
  4. Hi David Thanks for that but I've actually explored all those possibilities. I think it may be that the heads need cleaning, which I'm investigating now.
  5. Windows 7 HP psc1317 A while ago (I think it was when I got a new PC) my printer started printing in pale grey instead of black. Thinking it needed a new cartridge I got one and installed it but it made no difference so I thought 'I wonder if it's because I've changed PCs.' I still had my old PC (which runs on XP) so I connected it up and it printed out correctly in black. Hence, it wasn't the printer at fault. So I connected up my new PC and I think I might have reinstalled the printer driver. Anyway the printer printed out correctly. Now, after not using the printer for a couple of weeks, I've printed something and it's come out in pale grey again. Does anyone have any idea what the problem might be. Thanks.
